This article describes the design of the profile for a major-third bell using structural optimization strategies. First a sequential linear programming method was used to find a prototype of the bell. The necessary analyses were done using the finite element method. Next, a fast analysis model was derived by numerical experimental design techniques. This analysis model led to the final geometry of the major-third bell.
